INTRODUCTION. 



The present volume, which takes in the English, Scots, 
and Irish military establishments, covers the eventful 
period from 13 February 1689 to 23 April 1694— a time 
of uninterrupted war with France and of internal rebel- 
lion, for the first two and a half years, in Scotland and 
Ireland. These five years of war with France did not 
redound to the glory of British arms on the Continent. 
The important fortresses of Mons and JNTamur were taken 
by the French — the former in 1691, and the latter in 
1692. The British and their allies, under the King of 
Great Britain, suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of 
the renowned Duke of Luxembourg at Steinkirk in 1692, 
and at Landen a year later. Uncle Toby was wont to 
say that the English soldiers learnt to swear terribly in 
Flanders, at the time we write of, and we may naturally 
conclude that this bad habit arose from repeated ill- 
success in battle. Even the phlegmatic William III. lost 
his temper after the hard-fought battle of Steinkirk, 
where many of his best officers, including that brave old 
veteran Lieut. -General Hugh Mackay, fell to rise no 
more. " Am I always to be beaten by that hunchback ? " 
exclaimed the King passionately, alluding to the victorious 
French Marshal, who was somewhat deformed. Wil- 
liam III. was a soldier and a General of no mean order, 
but in strategy he was much inferior to Luxembourg, 
who was known in France as the tapissler of Notre Dame 
from his having upholstered that Cathedral with so many 
foreign flags. Macaulay has given a vivid portrait of 
William at the battle of Landen, and his admirable

retreat from that fatal field. The historian lias in no 
way over-coloured his picture. There was something 
inexpressibly grand in the way that this monarch fought 
against odds year after year and campaign after cam- 
paign. He never let his feeble frame and chronic ill- 
health interfere with the fixed purpose of his life — to 
humble Prance. 

The campaign in Scotland began badly by the defeat 
of the Iioyalist troops at Killiecrankie. But with Dun- 
dee's death the backbone of the Jacobite insurrection in 
that kingdom was broken. The war in Ireland was a 
toucher nut to crack. Thousands of valuable lives were 
lost by fever, dysentery, hunger, and the sword— more 
from the first three causes than from the last. Schom- 
berg, the octogenarian Commander-in-Chief of the army 
to reduce Ireland, said " he thought little of soldiers fresh 
from the plough." But Eate decreed that the major 
portion of his troops should consist of raw and untrained 
levies. Out of thirteen infantry regiments raised in Eng- 
land in March 1689, no less than eleven were sent to 
Ireland the following summer. To these new levies were 
added six Inniskilling regiments — one of horse (Wolse- 
ley's), two of dragoons (Wynne's and Sir Albert Con- 
yngham's), and three of foot (Hamilton's, Lloyd's, and 
Tiffin's). A military Chaplain (the Rev. George Story) 
who witnessed the Inniskilling Cavalry march into 
Schomberg's camp describes them as " three regiments 
of volunteer irregulars, some on big horses, some on small, 
some furnished out with a very fair imitation of a regular 
trooper's equipments, others with nothing military but 
their arms ; some had holsters, whilst others carried their 
pistols stuck into their belts ; and the majority of the 
privates had their servants riding behind them on small 
country ponies called ' garrons.' ' It was not long before 
Schomberg discovered the excellent fighting qualities of 
these same " irregulars," and a few months of military 
discipline and drill metamorphosed these Inniskilling

troops into splendid soldiers — men who could go any- 
where and do anything.* 

One of the special features of this present volume is the 
" List of Infantry Regiments reviewed at Dundalk Camp 
-if October 1689 " (pp. 106-123). The inspecting General 
sent confidential reports to William III. relative to the 
strength and efficiency of each separate regiment, with the 
names of the field officers and captains in each corps. 
These reports and lists, which are now for the first time 
printed en masse, are believed to be in the handwriting 
of General Count de Solms, the faineant of Steinkirk, who 
was killed at the battle of Landen. It will be seen from 
these reports that Schomberg could not possibly have 
marched upon Dublin, or attempted any design of im- 
portance against the enemy, in the autumn of 1689, 
or for some months afterwards, without running very 
great and unjustifiable risks. He was, practically speak- 
ing, in a hostile country, and it behoved him to get his 
army into good order before marching against an enemy 
whose army was superior in numbers and, for the most 
part, better armed, trained, officered, and provisioned than 
his own. And so this second Eabius intrenched his army 
at Dundalk camp and adopted defensive tactics. The 
result is well known. An unusually wet season set in. 
Food became very scarce, and what was forthcoming was 
often bad. Many of the soldiers had no overcoats, shirts, 
or even shoes. A general order was issued by Schomberg 
for the erection of wooden huts by the troops in camp. 
The foreign regiments obeyed, but from indolence and 
ignorance the English troojos deferred commencing this 



* Colonel Lloyd, with his Inniskilling Cavalry and some infantry, 
defeated a strong force of Irish under Col. O'Kelly, near Boyle, 25 Sep- 
tember 1689, and took many prisoners and 8,000 head of cattle. Schom- 
berg was so pleased with this success that he paraded all the Inniskilling 
troops in camp, complimented them on their comrades' victory, and rode 
along the whole line with his hat off. — Story's Impartial History of the 
Wars in Ireland, 1689-1692, Pt. I. p. 25.

work until it was impossible to procure either dry wood 
or dry thatch. Muddle and puddle reigned supreme. 
We are also told that the English soldiers would not even 
exert themselves to drain their camping ground.* The 
majority of the English officers only looked after them- 
selves, and neglected their men. In many instances the 
former defrauded the soldiers of their pay. These abuses 
necessitated an order to the effect that officers neglecting 
their men and defrauding them of their pay would be 
" broke without ceremony "f (id est, without a court 
martial). Dundalk camp soon became a plague-stricken 
centre. The English soldiers died by hundreds. Many 
officers shared the same fate. Schomberg had insur- 
mountable difficulties to overcome. No one can read his 
letters and despatches without admiring the indomitable 
energy of this veteran warrior. Nothing seemed to 
escape his eye, and his -power of grasping details was 
marvellous. The incapacity and ignorance of many of 
the officers in his fast dwindling army nearly drove him 
to despair. "Asl was never in an army in which are so 
many new and lazy officers," wrote Schomberg to the 
King on 26 December 1689, " you will believe that all 
this causes me much trouble ; if all were cashiered that 
deserve it, few would remain."! Before the winter was 
over four English regiments were broken up to recruit 
the /est, viz. : the Earl of Drogheda's, the Earl of Ros- 
common's, Sankey's (late Lord Lovelace's), and In- 
goldsby's regiments. Men inured to toil, privations, 
and climatic changes fell sick by scores and were de- 
prived of the use of their limbs for life. Take, for 
example, the hundred carters who accompanied the Train 
of Artillery to Ireland in June 1689. Writing to the 
Board of Ordnance in London, from his winter quarters

INTRODUCTION. XI 

at Lisburn, on 6 January 1690, Schomberg reports : 
11 Out of fifty carters thirty are sick, and some of them 
have lost the use of their limbs, and it is feared will 
never recover."* We naturally ask ourselves this ques- 
tion : " Where were the remaining fifty carters who had 
left London six months previously ? " Echo answers 
" Where ? " Three days after writing the above report 
we find Schomberg descanting, in a letter to the King, 
on the delicacy of Englishmen in general : " La nation 
Angloise (sic) est si delicatement elevee que d'abord 
qu'ils sont hors de leur pays, ils deperissent partout ou 
je les ay vu servir dans les pays etrangers les premieres 
campagnes."f 

The turn of the tide set in before the winter was over. 
Schomberg' s repeated and earnest requests to the King 
for more troops, more horses, more money, more arms, 
more clothing, more stores, more provisions, more medi- 
cines, &c, &c, were at last responded to. Regiment 
after regiment arrived from England — not newly raised 
battalions, but the flower of the British army — and also 
from Holland. Danish auxiliaries — both horse and foot — 
came over likewise. Transport after transport unloaded 
large cargoes of stores in Belfast harbour. Capt. Shales, 
the much abused Commissary-General, who was made the 
scapegoat for all the ills which befell Schomberg's army, 
was succeeded by one Wm. Robinson, who had served in 
Ireland, in a joint civil and military capacity, since the 
Restoration. This new broom was a shrewd Yorkshire- 
man, and managed affairs so well that he was soon after- 
wards appointed Deputy Paymaster- General in Ireland, 
and in 1694 was granted an augmentation to his coat- 
armour by Ulster King of Arms.j "Marching Hos-

pitals" and " Pixed Hospitals" were formed (p. 161). 
Competent, doctors, surgeons, chaplains, clerks, and pur- 
veyors were appointed to the same {ibid.). Arrears were 
paid up. Arms and clothing were served out. Strong 
and healthy recruits filled the yawning gaps in the ranks 
of the late fever- stricken regiments. The expected arri- 
val of the King, who was coming to open the campaign 
in person, had a stimulating effect on Schomherg's army. 
His Majesty landed at Carrickfergus, with a hrilliant 
following, on 14 June 1690, and on 27 June the whole 
army concentrated hefore Dundalk — a grand total of 
37,000 men. On 1 July the hattle of the Boyne was 
fought. William reaped the fruits of this decisive vic- 
tory over James's Eranco-Irish army, which is said not 
to have exceeded 30,000 men, but the glory really be- 
longed to Schomberg. This veteran had toiled and 
moiled for nearly a twelvemonth in getting a wretchedly 
bad army fit to take the field, but Pate decreed that he 
was not to see the triumph of the Cause for the sake of 
which he had endured so many hardships. He gloriously 
fell, in the thick of the battle, when leading La Caille- 
motte's Huguenot regiment against the enemy. And 
within an hour or so another heroic spirit passed away 
in the person of Dr. George Walker, Bishop-elect of 
Derry, who met a soldier's death when crossing the Boyne 
with one of the Inniskilling regiments. 

The regiments which gained special distinction at the 
Boyne were Wolseley's Inniskilling Horse (p. 27), Sir 
Albert Conyngham's Inniskilling Dragoons (p. 35), the 
Duke of Schomberg's regiment of French Horse (p. 26), 
Count La Caillemotte's regiment of French Foot (p. 82), 
St. John's Londonderry Regiment (p. 209), and Cutts's 
English Regiment, which came over with William III. 
at the Bevolution (Vol. II., p. 230), and was still on the 
Dutch establishment. 

St. John's regiment deserves more than passing men- 
tion here. It was one of the six volunteer regiments

which served at the defence of Londonderry, and after 
the siege was raised Ma] or- General Kirke fnsed the re- 
mains of the six regiments into three and brought in 
fresh recruits. The three newly -formed regiments were 
then added to the Irish military establishment. The 
sufferings of the garrison during the siege of Londonderry 
are almost unparalleled in history. We are told that 
horseflesh cost Is. 8d. per pound ; a quarter of a dog sold 
for 5s. 6d. ; a clog's head for 2s. 6d. ; a cat for 4s. 6d. ; a 
rat cost Is. ; a mouse 6d., and salted hides Is. ; greaves 
Is. per lb. ; tallow 4s. per lb., which, mixed with a little 
starch, was almost the only "farinaceous" diet obtain- 
able for some weeks before the close of the siege. It used 
to be said that the British soldier could not fight without 
his bed, his beef, and his beer ; but these hardy Deny 
volunteers fought on the ramparts by day, and often made 
sorties at night, and all this on nearly empty stomachs ! 
Was it surprising that, out of a garrison of 7,000 effec- 
tive men, 4,000 perished during the siege ? * 

A week after the victory of the Boyne came the news 
of the defeat of our fleet by the French off Beachy Head. 
The absence of the army in Ireland, and the scare of a 
French invasion, induced the citizens of London to raise 
a volunteer regiment of horse, and one of dragoons, for 
the additional defence of the metropolis (p. 135). An 
infantry volunteer corps was also raised at the same time 
(p. 160). These ephemeral regiments were disbanded 
when the scare subsided. 

The sun did not shine on the British arms after the 
victory at the Boyne. Lieut. -General Douglas's failure 
to take Athlone was attended with but few casualties, but 
the subsequent siege of Limerick cost many hundreds of 
valuable lives. No less that 1,500 of the besiegers were

chaplain ; also Capt. Ash's Narrative, Governor Walker's True Account,

killed and wounded at the unsuccessful storming of the 
breach on 27 August 1690. The number of offtcers who 
fell on this occasion was particularly large (pp. 165-167). 
No blame attached to the besieging army. William's 
troops were splendidly led, and fought like heroes in the 
trenches and in the deadly breach. But the defences of 
Limerick were too strong to be stormed, and the garrison 
had been encouraged to make fresh efforts to repulse their 
enemy by the success which attended General Patrick 
Sarsfield's recent cavalry raid. This experienced soldier, 
with 800 cavalry, waylaid, on the night of 11 August, 
the Artillery convoy and escort at Ballinedy, seven miles 
from Limerick, and butchered the whole party, who, with 
utter ignorance of military vigilance, had gone to rest 
without posting a single sentry. Nor was this all. Sars- 
field captured two 18-pounders and six 24-pounders, 
several waggons of provisions, and a set of ten pontoon- 
boats. The guns were burst on the spot and the waggons 
burnt. On 31 August the siege of Limerick was raised 
and William III. returned to England. 

That great captain the Earl of Marlborough obtained 
leave from the Queen, in August 1690, to lead an expe- 
dition to Ireland for the reduction of Cork and Kinsale. 
He arrived off Cork on 21 September with the foot regi- 
ments of Trelawny, Beaumont, Hastings, Eitzpatrick, the 
Boyal Eusiliers, Colyear, and detachments from the Duke 
of Bolton's and the Earl of Monmouth's regiments, 
together with Lord Torrington's and Lord Pembroke's 
newly raised regiments of Marines (pp. 156-158). Marl- 
borough's sledge-hammer strokes resulted in the sur- 
render of Cork on 28 September and Kinsale on 15 Octo- 
ber. Having accomplished what he had undertaken, the 
victorious General returned to England. 

Turning to the military affairs of Scotland, we find 
that out of a force of eleven troops of horse, a regiment 
of dragoons, and eleven regiments of foot levied in Scot- 
land in 16S9, there were only left, at the close of 1690, 



PJTBODUCTIOK": XT 

four infantry regiments, Adz. : the Earl of Leven's (p. 85), 
the Earl of Angus's (p. 87), the Earl of Argyle's (p. 89), 
and Richard Cunningham's regiment (p. 97). All the 
rest had been disbanded. From the disbanded troops of 
horse and dragoons were raised Colonel Richard Cun- 
ningham's regiment of Dragoons (now the 7th Hussars), 
dating from 30 December 1G90, and Lord Newbattle's 
regiment of Dragoons, dating from January (?) 1691 ; 
and from the late foot regiments was raised, in Septem- 
ber 1690, Colonel John Hill's corps for garrisoning In- 
verlochy (Fort "William), the key to the Highlands 
(Appendix, pp. 414, 415). A desultory warfare was still 
carried on in the Highlands of Scotland in 1690. The 
only action of any real importance was the surprise and 
defeat, by Colonel Sir Thomas Livingston, of the High- 
land Army, under Generals Buchan and Cannon, at 
Cromdale, in Strathspey, on the night of 1 May. Liv- 
ingston had a force of 1,200 men, consisting of 300 of 
his own regiment (the Royal Scots Dragoons), and part 
of the Laird of Grant's Regiment of Foot (p. 92), with 
some independent companies. So completely was the 
Jacobite force, numbering about 1,200 men, taken un- 
awares that "the very commanders themselves, the re- 
doubted Buchan and Cannon, were almost as much taken 
by surprise ; and the one had only his shirt and night- 
cap, while the other was without sword, hat, and coat.* 
Livingston's raid, and the defeat of the Jacobites, is 
humorously told in an old song which is not so well 
known in England as it is over the Border, so may not be 
out of place here : —

I met a man in tartan trews, 
I speer'd at him what was the news ; 
Quo' he, the Highland army rues 
That e'er we came to Cromdale. 

" We were in bed, sir, every man, 
When th' English host upon us came ; 
A bloody battle then began, 

Upon the haughs of Cromdale. 
The English horse they were so rude 
They bathed their hoofs in Highland blood ; 
But our brave clans they boldly stood 

Upon the haughs of Cromdale. 

" But, alas ! we could no longer stay, 
For o'er the hills we came away, 
And sore we do lament the day 

That e'er we came to Cromdale." 

The campaign in Ireland opened with renewed vigour 
in the spring of 1691. General de Ginckell, one of 
William's best generals, was appointed Commander-in- 
Chief. Fresh troops were poured into Ireland. A Train 
of Artillery (pp. 184-185), which was, in every respect, 
superior to the 1689 train, was ready for service. Story, 
the historian of the Wars in Ireland, 1689-1692, writ- 
ing under date of May 1691, says: — "Our Train of 
Artillery was also upon its march from Dublin to Mul- 
lingar, being such an one as had never before been seen 
in that kingdom." The taking of Athlone by storm was 
one of the most brilliant achievements of the whole war. 
This large and well-fortified town was divided into two 
unequal portions by the river Shannon, a bridge connect- 
ing the two towns, which were called respectively Eng- 
lish Town and Irish Town. The former town was stormed 
on 20 June and carried after a brave resistance. Briga- 
dier Steuart's regiment (9th Foot) and the grenadier 
companies of all the attacking regiments, had much to 
do with this day's success. For ten days in succession 
every effort was strained by the English troops to gain 
possession of the entire bridge, but a broken arch and 
other obstacles stopped further progress. The leading 
spirits of the English army, such as Generals de Ginckell, 
Mackay, Talmash, and Ruvigny, advocated an immediate

assault. It was decided to ford the Shannon, a wide and 
deep river, and storm the town. About 2,000 troops, 
consisting of grenadiers and picked men, under Major- 
General Mackay, forded the river, which was waist deep, 
twenty abreast, on the evening of 30 June, under a 
heavy fire from the enemy's batteries. The stormers 
succeeded in reaching the breach in the castle wall, and, 
driving the Irish before them, made for the bridge. The 
broken arch was planked over, and the British troops, 
who were in readiness, poured into the town. Athlone 
was won. For this important success General de Ginc- 
kell was, at the close of the campaign, created Earl of 
Athlone; and Colonel Gustavus Hamilton, who led the 
advanced party of stormers at this eventful assault, was 
appointed Governor of Athlone, 7 March 1692. 

Twelve days after the above victory General de Ginc- 
kell signally defeated General St. Ruth, the Irish Com- 
mander, at Aughrim. St. Ruth was slain with many 
of his best officers, and a large number of prisoners 
were made. But the British lost heavily in killed and 
wounded. Colonel Charles Herbert, who commanded the 
regiment now known as the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, was 
taken prisoner and barbarously murdered by his captors. 
Colonel Thomas Erie, who was wounded, was twice taken 
prisoner and twice rescued by his men. The brave Prince 
of Hesse-Darmstadt was also wounded. The Royal 
Horse Guards, the Inniskilling Dragoons, and the Mar- 
quis de Ruvigny's regiment of French Horse specially 
distinguished themselves. Also the foot regiments of 
Erie (19th Foot), Herbert (23rd Foot), Earl of Meath 
(18th Foot), Tiffin (27th Foot), St. John, and Lord 
George Hamilton (pp. 206-207). 

Limerick, the pierce de resistance of the Irish War, 
stood a siege of six weeks, and after a record defence 
capitulated on 3 October. By all accounts the artillery 
practice during this siege was very good on the British 
side. The guns consisted of 2i-pounders, 18-pounders

and 12-pounders, which played unceasingly on the town 
from well-protected batteries, while 10-inch to 18-inch 
mortars threw deadly bombs into the doomed city. Lieut. 
Thomas Brown, of the Company of Miners, distinguished 
himself as an artillerist at this siege, and was styled by 
the historian (Story) as "Our best bombardier" (p. 326). 
And able Engineers, such as Holcroft Blood (who lived 
to command the Artillery Train at Blenheim) and Jean 
de Bodt (who served at eight sieges and four battles), 
paved the road to victory by throwing pontoon-bridges 
across the Shannon in the face of the enemy. "With the 
fall of Limerick the war in Ireland terminated. 

Reverting again to Scottish affairs, we find a detach- 
ment of the Earl of Argyle's regiment of Eoot engaged 
in the midnight massacre of the McDonalds of Glencoe, 
13 Eebruary 1692. The details are too well known and 
too gruesome to recapitulate. All who were answerable 
for this slaughter were equally to blanie — from the King 
on his throne, w T ho issued the warrant for the extirpation 
of this particular tribe, down to Captain Campbell of 
Glenlyon, who carried out the orders of his superior 
officers. 

The war in Elanders had been in progress since the 
accession of William III., and the Allied troops, with a 
strong British contingent, took the field against the 
Erench every spring and retired into winter quarters 
every autumn with the regularity of dormice. The 
British were commanded, in 1689, by the Earl of Marl- 
borough, and on 25 August a sharp action was fought 
at Walcourt, in the province of Namur, where the 
Erench, under Marshal d'Humieres, were repulsed. The 
regiment commanded by Colonel Robert Hodges (16th 
Eoot) gained distinction in this affair. In the following 
year Prince Waldeck, the Generalissimo, thought fit to 
engage the Erench troops at Eleurus, without waiting 
for the arrival of the British troops, and was signally 
defeated. To make matters worse, Marlborough was re- 



INTRODUCTION. xix 

called to England in the summer of 1691 and Count de 
Solms appointed General of the British Contingent under 
William III., who commanded all the Allied troops in 
person. 

The only occasion on which the British were engaged 
during the campaign of 1691 was at Leuse, near Cham- 
bron, when the Duke of Luxembourg attacked the rear- 
guard of the Confederate Army with great fury, and 
routed them. The cavalry, however, was soon rallied, 
and, advancing to the charge, the enemy beat a retreat. 
The only British troops engaged were the Life Guards, 
and it is recorded that " during the heat of this- action a 
private of the English Life Guards, having penetrated 
through the first ranks of the enemy, perceived at a 
short distance Marshal Luxembourg, attended by ten or 
twelve of his staff. The Life Guardsman, with his pistol 
in his hand, rushed up to the Marshal with intent to 
shoot him ; but his life was preserved by the interpo- 
sition of his attendants, who killed the Life Guards- 
man."* 

The grievous loss of British officers at Steinkirk (1692), 
and Landen (1693) left many widows and orphans de- 
pendent upon the King's bounty. A list of the widows 
of officers who were killed in action, or died of wounds, 
from 1689 to 1693, will be found in the Appendix 
(pp. 403, 404). This list is valuable as determining the 
deaths of individuals at a given date. 

The tide of defeat which swept over the British and 
their Allies on the fatal field of Landen had likewise 
been experienced in the West Indies. The attack on 
Port St. Pierre, Martinique, in the spring of 1693, by the 
combined naval and military forces, was repulsed with loss. 
Disease broke out soon after among the troops, and 
carried off hundreds, including distinguished officers such 
as Colonel Jno. Eoulkes and Colonel Robert Goodwyn. 

* Cannon's Records of the Life Guards, p. 100. 



XX INTRODUCTION. 

Nor did this year close without another defeat. On 
24 September Marshal Catinat attacked the allied 
forces of the Duke of Savoy and Prince Eugene at Mas- 
siglia, near Turin, and defeated them. Charles, Duke of 
Schomberg, Colonel of the 1st Foot Guards, who com- 
manded the British contingent in Piedmont, was mortally 
wounded. 

To carry on the war William III. found it ahsolutely 
necessary to increase the British Army. He was his 
own War Minister, hut he had to depend on his Par- 
liament for the sinews of war. In 1693 the King had 
only heen able to increase his army by one regiment of 
dragoons, and one of foot, on the Irish Establishment, 
viz. : Henry Conyngham's (the present 8th Hussars) and 
the Earl of Donegal's Begiment of Eoot. Two foot 
regiments were also added to the Scots Establishment, 
viz. : Sir James Moncrieff's and Lord Strathnaver's. 
There are no lists of these new regiments forthcoming 
in the Commission Entry Books for the year 1693. The 
Irish officers were commissioned by the Lord Lieutenant 
of Ireland (Appendix, p. 407), and the commissions of 
the Scottish officers were served out in blank to the 
Colonels.* 

In 1694 Parliament allowed William III. four new 
regiments of dragoons, six of horse, and fifteen of in- 
fantry, but it was deemed advisable to strengthen certain 
old regiments by adding two troops to three dragoon 
regiments serving, or under orders to serve, in Inlanders, 
and one or two companies to infantry regiments ordered 
on service, t There were likewise raised for the English 
Establishment, on 16 February, three regiments of horse, 
viz. the Earl of Macclesfield's, the Earl of Arran's, and

| Royal Warrants oulered two additional troops for Lord Fairfax's, 
Lord Essex's, Sir Thos. Livingston's, and Col. Richard Cunningham's 
Regiments of Dragoons; two companies to the Scots Foot Guards, and 
one company of 100 men to Steuart's, Belasyse's, Coote's, Rowe's, and 
Michelburue's Regiments. 



INTRODUCTION. xxi 

Windsor's (pp. 351-356) ; two of dragoons, viz. the Earl 
of Denbigh's and Leigh's ; fonr of foot, viz. : Gibson's, 
Farrington's, Xorthcote's and Russell's (pp. 381-385). 
The last-named regiment was raised for service in Bar- 
bados. For the Scots Establishment were raised Lord 
Carmichael's Regiment of Dragoons, and three regiments 
of foot, viz. : Robert Mackay's, Lord Murray's, and Lord 
Lindsay's. Owing to the volume of Scottish Warrants 
and Commissions for 1694 being unfortunately lost, and 
not forthcoming at the Public Record Office, the lists of 
three of the above-named four Scottish regiments cannot 
be given in the present volume. But, thanks to the 
courtesy and kindness of the Duke of Atholl, the list of 
his ancestor's regiment of foot — viz., Lord Murray's — is 
forthcoming, with the Duke's annotations to the same 
(pp. 386-387). The Irish Establishment was increased 
by four infantry regiments, viz. : Courthope's, Sir 
Richard Atkins's, Viscount Mountjoy's, and Viscount 
Charlemont's (pp. 388-392). Two additional independent 
companies were raised for New England and one for 
Jamaica (p. 393). Parliament also voted 200,000/. for the 
Ordnance. An Artillery Train was ordered for service 
in Elanders, and one to serve with the Fleet ; but these 
trains properly belong to a date subsequent to 23 April, 
and must therefore be relegated to a future volume. 

The spring of 1691 marked the highest tide in Wil- 
liam's army as regards numbers, for the British forces 
were 80,000 strong ; and the turn of the tide as regards 
success was soon to set in strongly in favour of the King 
of Great Britain, who had borne his late reverses with 
the courage and patience of a well-bred bulldog, biding 
his time : — ■ 

" Un temps viendra qui n'est pas venu, 
Que je mordrai qui m'aura mordu." 

Certain facts of historical interest have been brought 
to light by the Editor in his researches among military 
records, a few of which may be pointed out here. The 



XXll INTRODUCTION. 

missing commissions of the much-abused Captain George 
Carleton have turned up (Appendix, p. 408), notwith- 
standing all that has been said to the contrary, by an 
able writer, on p. 114 of the English Historical Review 
for 1891. Gustavus Hamilton, Viscount Boyne, has 
liitherto been mistaken, by historians and biographers, 
for his namesake, the Governor of Enniskillen. It was 
the latter, and not the former, who raised the Enniskillen 
Regiments in 1689 (Appendix p. 413). Colonel Thomas 
Lloyd, the able leader of the Enniskilleners in the early 
days of the Revolution, when he gained the title of the 
" Little Cromwell," has been unaccountably left out of 
biographical dictionaries, but takes his proper position in 
the present volume (p. 121). General Henry Hawley's 
parentage, which puzzled even Sir Walter Scott, is no 
longer an uncrackable historical nut (p. 374). The 
superficial memoir in the Dictionary of National Bio- 
graphy of Colonel Sir John Hill, Governor of Port William 
at the time of the Glencoe massacre, is now supple- 
mented by authentic information regarding his military 
career (Appendix, p. 414). The statement in biographi- 
cal memoirs that General Earl Cadogan began his mili- 
tary career in Colonel Wynne's Inniskilling Dragoons 
(5th Lancers) is manifestly incorrect, as he makes his 
first appearance in the Army as a Captain in the regiment 
now known as the 19th Eoot (p. 371), from which he 
was transferred to the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons. The 
first Highland Regiment was not Colonel George Hamil- 
ton's Regiment of Scots Eoot (p. 379), as that able writer 
the late Colonel Clifford Walton tells us on p. 276 of 
his History of the British Standing Army, 1660-1700, 
but the Earl of Argyle's Highlanders (Appendix, p. 416). 
And as regards dates of commissions many dates given 
in " Lists of Regimental Colonels," to be found in British 
Army Lists of the past, differ from those given in the 
Home Office and War Office Commission Entry Books. 
A revised and corrected " Succession of Regimental 



INTRODUCTION. xxm 

Colonels, from the date of raising of each regiment to 
31 December 1694 " (pp. 1-9) gives the dates of Colonels' 
commissions as they appear in the original MSS. The 
old regimental numbers have been given in the aforesaid 
List in the belief that it is the manifest destiny of the 
British Infantry to return, sooner or later, to the time- 
honoured and cherished numerical titles of the glorious 
past. 

The Editor is indebted to the Duke of Atholl for a 
copy of an original list of Lord Murray's Regiment of 
Scots Foot, raised in 1694, and for many annotations 
thereto; to Sir William Anson, Bart., Warden of All 
Souls College, Oxford, for leave to inspect the military 
MSS. in the library of the said College; also to Mr. Cary 
and Mr. Thorn of the War Office, and to Mr. Salisbury 
of the Public Record Office. 

In preparing the Indexes the Editor has, for the third 
time, to acknowledge the great help he has received from 
Mr. Mackney, late of the MS. Department, British 
Museum. Many of the commissions referred to in the 
first Index were signed by Queen Mary, but the com- 
missions signed in the Low Countries, given in a supple- 
mentary Index, bore the King's sign-manual.

* This Regt. of Horse was raised at the Revolution by Henry, Lord Delamere, and was sent to Ire- 
land in the spring of 1689. In 1690, the colonelcy was bestowed on Col. Theodore Russell, who had 
commanded a Regt. of Foot in Ireland, tempo James II. Russell's Horse served at the Boyne, and 
was disbanded 20 March 1691 (Add. MS. 10,123). No List of this Regt. appears in any of the comn. 
books, and the names of officers given below are all that can be ascertained with certainty. 

1 Henry Booth, 2nd Baron Delamere. Created Earl of Warrington by Win. III. Was three times 
imprisoned during the reign of Jas. II. He d. 2 Jan. 1694. 

2 M. E. B. 2. Under date of 25 October 1689, Luttrell gives the following piece of news from 
Chester : — " They say also that Mr. Bradnock, Lieut.-Col. to the Lord Delamere, was come thither, 
being cashier'd by the General for mutinying, because he did not fight the Irish " (Luttrell, Vol. I., 
p. 596). 

3 Undated comn. given in a paper in King William's Chest (formerly Sealed Bag), Vol. VIII., 
fo. 23. Not in any subsequent List. 

4 Distinguished himself at the siege of Londonderry. Reed. 200Z. from William III. in Aug. 1689, 
" and a letter to Duke Scbomberg to give him a comn. for the first Capt. of Horse that shall fall." 
(Luttrell, Vol. I., p. 577). The outcome of this Royal request was the above comn. which appears in 
M. E. B. 2. Not identified with the Joseph S. appointed Capt. in the Earl of Meath's Regt. of Foot, 
22 Dec. 1692. 

5 M. E. B. 2. His comn. says " to be Major of Horse in Lord Delamere's Regt." Served pre- 
viously in Sr. Tho. Newcomen's Regt. of Foot in Ireland. Doubtless a member of the noble Irish 
family of this name.

Cleaveland's Notes on the Early History of the Royal Regi. of Artillery, p. 117, and the above

disease and the sword, which necessitated the raising a new Train in Jan. 1691. 

1 Frederic, Duke of Schomberg, Marshal of France, &c, &c, landed in Ireland 12 Aug. 1689. The 
fearful mortality which spread through Schomberg's Army in Ireland during the autumn and early 
winter of 1689, did not spare even such able-bodied men as the Carters to the Artillery Train, and in 
the Duke's report on the said Train, dated 6 Jan. 1690, he says : — " Out of 50 carters 30 are sick, and 
some of them have lost the use of their limbs, and it is to be feared will never recover." As there 
were 100 carters appointed to the Train in June 1689 it is to be concluded 50 had been placed horsde 
combat before the Duke issued above report. Out of 100 boj^s only 42 were to be seen in Jan. 1690 : — 
" Of the 42 boys many are sick and the rest young and helpless, and are only a charge to the King 
and an incumbrance to the Trayne." Ordnance Warrant Book, Vol. XI. 

2 and 3 Not in any subsequent Lists. 

4 In one of Duke Schomberg's letters to the Board of Ordnance, dated "Lisburn, 27 Dec. 1689," he 
says: — "Capt. Glaum, Comptroller of the fire-works, is coming over by the King's order" (Ordnance 

Wt. Bk., Vol. XL). His name is not to be found in any subsequent List. 

5 Robt. Ayleway. It appears from the " Humble Petition of the Officers, Ministers, and Attendants 
of his Majesty's English and Dutch Trayn of Artillery employed for reducing Ireland," which was 
sent to the Lords of the Treasury, 9 Nov. 1699, that above officer was one of the few Artillery officers 
who had received payment of his arrears. Treasury Papers, Vol. LXIV., No. 39. 

6 Held the same post in Genl. de Ginkel's Train of 1691. As late as 10 May 1703, the accounts of 
the Artillery Train of 1689 had not been cleared. Treasury Papers, 10 May 1703. 

7 Served as an Imperialist Engineer at the siege of Buda, of which siege he wrote a narrative. On 
his return to England was appointed third engineer by Rl. Wt., dated 6 June 1686. Served with King 
James' Train in Nov. 1688. Was sent to Londonderry, in the spring of 1689, to assist in the defence 
of that town, but was not able to get inside the beleaguered town (Luttrell, Vol. I., p. 548). Ap- 
pointed Capt. of a Company of Fusiliers by Maj.-Gen. Kirke, 6 Aug. 1689. Served at the siege of 
Carrickfergus, where he was wounded (Cleaveland Notes, p. 119). Appointed chief engineer, with 
rank of Lieut.-Col., to Genl. de Ginkel's Train in 1691. Sent to Flanders the same year. Bt. Col. 
30 Apr. 1691, at Steinkirk. Served with the Flanders Train of Artillery in 1692, and was with the 
fleet which bombarded Calais and St. Malo in 1693. Appointed Lieut.-Col. of a Train of Artillery 
which served on board the English fleet in 1694, and bombarded Havre, Dieppe, &e. (Cleaveland 
Notes, p. 135). Claimed a reward for fitting out the bomb ships in last-named expedition, but it does 
not appear his claim was allowed. Entered the Venetian Service, but retained his post as Third 
Engineer of England until his decease in June 1701. He was sou of Col. Solomon R., and bro. to the 
distinguished engineer officers. Col. John R. and Brigdr.-Gen. Michael R. 

8 Son of Col. Thos. B., the would-be thief of the Crown jewels. Served, in his youth, in the French 
army, where he learnt the " engineering art." Returned to England in 1688, and was appointed Capt. 
of the Pioneers in Jas. II.'s Artillery Train. Served through the Irish campaign, and was appointed 
Capt. in Col. Jno. Foulkes' Regt. of Foot in 1692. Major 30 Oct. 1693. Served as Chief British 
Engineer at Namur. Transferred as Major to Lord Cutts's Regt. of Foot 22 Mar. 1694. Lt.-Col. of 
Sir Mat. Bridges's Regt. of Foot 7 July 1702. Col. of said Regt. 26 Aug. 1705. Col. of the Train of 
Artillery at Blenheim. D. a Brigdr.-Genl. at Brussels, 30 Aug. 1707. 

9 Appointed by the Duke of Schomberg 16 July 1689 (Ordnance Wt. Bk., Vol. X.). Held the same 
post in Genl. de Ginkel's Train. 

10 It is recorded of this officer, who was evidently a Dutchman, that he objected to the Artillery 
horses being used for anything but Artillery purposes, so that when his horses were requisitioned by 
the Commissary-Genl. to bring corn into the camp at Dundalk, where the army was starving for want 
of food, he refused to send them, altho' they were not in use at the time, the camp being stationary 
and the enemy distant. Schomberg over-ruled this dog-in-the-manger policy, and the draught horses 
performed the necessary duties required by the Corny .-Genl. Col. Walton's Hist, of the Brit. Standing 
Army, p. 71. 

11 Served throughout the Irish Campaign. Raised an additional Cy. of Foot for Col. Jno Foulkes' 
Regt. of Foot in the spring of 1692, and was given a Capt.'s commn. in same Regt. (Rl. Wt., dated 
16 May 1692, in Ordnance Wt Bk. Vol. XIII.). Exchanged to Col. Jno. Beaumont's Regt. of Foot 
25 Apr. 1694. Out of the Army before 1702. 

12 Appointed Commissary of the Draught Horses in Genl. de Ginkel's Train of Artillery in Jan. 1691. 

13 This surname ought probably to be Owen. It is a fact worth mentioning that brass ordnance were 
first cast in England in 1535 by one John Owen. Camden's Britannia.

Kin<r came to the knowledge of it ; upon which he sent two gentlemen to examine the cloathing, and

Burnet says : " He was a man of a strange mixture. He had the spleen to an high degree, and affected 
an extravagant behaviour ; for many weeks he would not open his mouth till such au hour of the day 
when he thought the air was pure. He changed the day into night, and often hunted by torchlight. 

He was a man of profuse expense, and of a most ravenous avarice to support that ; and 
though he was much hated, yet he carried matters before him with such authority and success, that 
he was, in all respects, the great riddle of the age." D. in. Feb. 1699.

* This List is given in Tho. Carter's Records of the 26th Regt. of Foot, p. 5. Raised in April 1689 
by the followers of Richd. Cameron, who " did make up the Earl of Angus's Regt. of 800 men, all in 
one day, without beat of drum or expenses of levy-money." An additional 400 men were raised 
before 14 May 1689. The Regt. had a Minister of its own persuasion and an Elder to each Company. 
While every private soldier is said to have carried a Bible in his knapsack. The Regt. gained early 
distinction by their splendid conduct in the defence of Dunkeld, on 21 Aug. 1689, where they defeated 
the Jacobite forces after desperate fightiDg, notwithstanding the great superiority in numbers oi the 
enemy. Embarked for Flanders in 1691, and served throughout Wm. III.'s and Marlborough s 
campaigns. 

i See copy of this nobleman's comn. from the Parlt. of Scotland, dated 19 Apr. 1689, in the 
Appendix. Only son of Jas. Douglas, 2nd Marquis of Douglas, by his 1st wife. Killed at the battle 
of Steinkirk in 1692, aged 23. 

2 Comn. given in the Acts of the Parlt. of Scotland, Vol. IX., p. 56. Covenanter, poet, soldier 
Son of Tho. Cleland, gamekeeper to the Marquis of Douglas. Served with the Covenanters at 
Drumclog 1 June 1679, and held the rank of Capt. at the battle of Bothwell Bridge 22 June same 
year. Escaped to Holland, where he spent the years of his exile. Returned at the Revolution, and 
owed his appointment to the Lieut.-Colonelcy of the Cameronians to his intimacy with the young 
Earl of Angus. Commanded his Regt. at Dunkeld when a force of 5,000 Jacobites forced their entry 
into the town. It was mainly due to Cleland's bravery and resolution that the recruits who formed 
the ranks of the Cameronians held their grounds like veterans, and finally repulsed the enemy 
(Macaulay's Hist, of England, Vol. III., p. 64). Killed whilst defending Dunkeld churchyard.

came of a Dumbartonshire family, and had served previously as Lt.-Col. of Lord Mountjoy's Regt. of 
Foot in Ireland. After remaining many years in disgrace he was appointed Adjt.-Genl. to the

INFANTRY REGIMENTS 
REVIEWED AT DUNDALK CAMP. 



^ OCT. 1689. 



EDITOR'S MEMORANDUM. 

Among King William's Papers (S.P.D. King William's Chest, Vol. VI., Oct. 1689- 
Feb. 1690) is a MS. " List of the Infantry Reviewed at Dundalk Camp £f Oct. 1689." 
This List gives the names of the Captains in each Regt. (including the Field Officers) ; 
the numbers of officers and men in each Company present at the Review ; the numbers 
of those on the Sick List, and the number of deaths in each Company since arriving in 
camp. To each Regt. is attached a confidential Inspection Report, but it is not stated 
by whom these Reports are given. The whole MS. is in French, and the orthography 
of the proper names, as well as that of the reports in question, is most erratic. To 
simplify matters, the surnames in the following Lists are given as they ought to be 
spelt, and the Christian names of officers added ; the statistics are omitted altogether, 
and the confidential reports are abridged and translated. Some of the latter were 
translated by the late Col. Walton, C.B., and appear in his History of the British 
Standing Army, 1660-1700 (p. 80). The reports unnoticed by Col. Walton are given 
in English by the Editor. The Lists themselves are now printed en masse for the 
first time, and containing, as they do, names which are not to be found elsewhere, form a 
very valuable addition to English Army Lists and Commission Registers. Annotations 
are confined to such names as have not been previously fully noticed. The letters 
A. and S. before certain names signify '' absent " and " sick," and j signifies " dead."

THE QUEEN DOWAGER'S REGT. OF FOOT. 

There are some fine men in this Rfgt., but the clothing is very had. Many still left 
on the Sick List on the Island of Inch, and many dead both there and here. The 
Lieut.-Col., Major, and some Captains seem to be pretty good officers, but the 
Subalterns are mostly young, and not all gentlemen. Two Captains are rarely with 
the Regt., being Captains of vessels [men-of-war]. The Regt. complains of irregular 
payments, and that they are twenty weeks in arrears.

112 ENGLISH ARMY LISTS AND [1689. 



THE EARL OF DROGHEDA'S REGT. OF FOOT. 

This Regiment is at present the worst in the Army in every respect, for the Colonel, 
who, when in England, was very assiduous, has become negligent of his duties since 
returning to his own country. His officers know nothing, and entirely neglect the 
Service; the soldiers are worse. The natural result is a bad state of things. The 
clothing is of such bad quality that it is worth nothing, and the coats are too small. 
This Regiment, like some others, requires shuts.

THE EARL OF KINGSTON'S REGT. OF FOOT.* 

This Regiment is not a bad one ; nor is the clothing bad as far as it goes, but many 
articles are missing owing to the mismanagement of certain " miserables " at Chester, 
who have be:m punished. Half the officers also pass muster, and the Major, especially, 
knows his business ; but the Lieut.-Col., notwithstanding his long service and his good 
opinion of himself, is not really efficient.

THE EARL OF ROSCOMMON'S REGT. OF FOOT. 

The Colonel of this Regiment is pretty well known for his extravagant doings, and 
is seldom to be seen with his corps. But he knows very well how to look after money, 
as he pays very badly, and both officers and men have great difficulty in getting their 
pay from him. The Regiment is also composed of very bad officers, and notwith- 
standing that the clothing has been charged for twice over, the soldiers are nearly 
naked, having no shirts, which is a very general fault with all the English Regiments. 
There are some fine men in the Regiment, and it is better than that of Ingoldsby, 
Lovelace, Drogheda, or Herbert's in its present condition.

VISCOUNT LISBURNE'S REGT. OF FOOT. 

The men are not bad in this Regiment. Clothing also pretty good, and about half 
the officers. The Lt.-Col. is a very vigilant and assiduous officer, the Major may pass 
also, but the Colonel puts himself out very little and in an extravagant style. He is 
also too fond of his bottle.

LORD LOVELACE'S REGT. OF FOOT. 

This Regiment, which was not a very good one at its first raising, is in a dis- 
organised state, not having had any commanding officer for some time, for the Lieut.- 
Col. has been cashiered, and the Major is in England. The clothing is worth nothing, 
shirts wanting. Both officers and men badly selected. In short, it is hard to say 
whether this or Ingoldsby's Regiment is the worst, and the payment of each corps is 
about equal.

COL. THOMAS ERLE'S REGT. OF FOOT. 

The fact of the Colonel having been ill for some time has not conduced to the benefit 
of this Regiment because the other officers have not his experience in military matters, 
so that the Regt. is not in a very good state, nor is it much better than Lord 
Roscommon's corps. The clothing is also somewhat in disorder, but the Colonel has 
sent into Scotland for u surtouts," which are very necessary in this country, and unless 
the other Regts. (Wharton's and Lord Meath's excepted) are supplied with the same 
kind of clothing they will not last more than three months.

1 The most celebrated officer in this Regt. Defended a small fort near Sligo with a detachment of 
his Regt. for four days, in Oct. 1689, and altho' forced to surrender, his heroic defence of an untenable 
position against overwhelming numbers, won for him and his party their own terms, coupled with the 
admiration of Col. Patrick Sarsfield, the commander of the Irish troops on this occasion. " As the 
intrepid Huguenots marched over the bridge, Sarsfield stood with a piece of gold in his hand and 
offered every man who would engage in King James's service 5 guineas with a horse and arms. They 
all, however, except one, replied that they would never fight for Papists, and that one deserting next 
day with his gold, his arms and his horse, got safely to Schomberg's headquarters. Capt. St. Sauveur 
died of fever in Lisburn." Agnew's Protestant Exiles from France, Vol. II., p. 86.

COL. DU CAMBON'S REGT. OF FOOT. 

The Colonel, who is ill at present, looks after the welfare of his Regiment and the 
Lieut.-Col. does the same, but the Major surpasses them both in this respect, and it is 
a pity that he is not expected to recover from his illness. The Regiment not having 
" surtouts " has also more sick men than the other [French] Regiments, and they have 
removed about 80 Romanists, which makes several companies very weak, otherwise the

The Regiment is well clothed and has " surtouts," so that at present it is in a

* Formed from compauies raised by Gustavus Hamilton, Govr. of Enniskillen, early in 1689. The 
officers reed, their first comns. from Maj.-Gen. Kirke, and they were dated 9,0 June 1689. Served 
throughout the Irish campaign. Disbauded in 1692. 

1 James II. referring to the Jnniskilling troops in his Memoirs, says of Col. Lloyd :— « They [the 
Inniskillingers] call him their little Cromwell " (Clarke's Life of Jos. II., Vol. II., p. 383). The 
name was well chosen, for Col. Lloyd succeeded in every enterprise he undertook, and while his 
presence never failed to animate his own troops, it had a disheartening effect on the Irish forces sent 
to oppose him. Sprung from an old Welsh family. Col. Lloyd's grandfather migrated to Ireland and 
left at his decease a son, Capt. Owen L., who had an estate in the Uo. Roscommon. The latter s eldest 
son was the aforesaid - Little Cromwell." In the previous reign he had served as Cornet in Col. Bic. 
Hamilton's Regt. of Dragoons (Hist. MSS. Com., 14th Report, Appx., Pt VII., p. 422), and when 
Gustavus Hamilton, Govr. of Enniskillen, who had also served as Cornet of Horse in James II. s late 
Army was raising troops for the defence of the Protestant Cause, Thos. Lloyd came to Enniskillen 
in Jan 1689 and was speedily cho?eu second in command of the Horse and Foot then being raised 
(Rev Andrew Hamilton's True Fetation of the Men of Enniskillen, p. 18, et seq.). " On Apr. 24," 
wrote \ndiew Hamilton, " Lt.-Col. Llovd took a party of Foot and Horse and burnt Omagh Castle 
and defaced the fortifications, and returned with much cattle and sheep. Good milch cows were now 
sold in Enniskillen for 2s. 6d. each. This was Col. Lloyd's first expedition with our men.' On the 
4 May he marched with 12 Foot companies and some troops of Horse against Balhshany, took that 
place and defeated the enemy, killing six score and capturiug 60 men (Ibid). The end of May 
Llovd was sent with a mixed force of 1,500 men to the relief of Redhill and Bellinacareg (two forti- 
fied houses in the Co. Cavau), "the latter of which had once kept Oliver Cromwell at bay for several 
days " but which speedily surrendered to the Little Cromwell (Hamilton's 7 rue Relation). On June 
17 he defeated the enemy in a decisive action at Belturbet and took 300 prisoners. Received a com- 
mission from Mai.-Gen. Ivirke dated June 20, 1689, as Colonel of one of the three Enniskillen Regts. 
of Foot. Commanded latter Regt. in the battle of Newtown Butler, where the Irish received a 
crushing defeat at the hands of the Enniskillen troops. A contemporary writer who fought under 
Col Llovd on several occasions, thus speaks of him :— " We marched in the night under the command 
of Lt -Col Lloyd, under whose conduct we never failed accomplishing what we designed, but without 
him could not nor ever did anything " (Wm. M^Cormick's Further Account of the Men of Inniskilhng, 
p 37) In the winter of 1689-90 this gallant leader of men departed this life to the great loss ol the 
whole Army. By some strange oversight Col. Tho. Lloyd's name has been omitted in the Diet, of 
National Biography. 

2 The Revd Andrew Hamilton thus speaks of the above officer :— " In Jany. also came to us from 
Connaught, Thos. Lloyd and Daniel Hudson (sic) with their families . . . Mr. Hudson, by 
his sound advice in Council, contributed much to our advantage " (True Relation, p. 18). Promoted 
Lieut. -Col. in 1690. Accepted a Capt.'s comn. in the Earl of Charlemont s newly-raised Regt. of 
Foot, 23 Apr. 1694. Placed on half-pay in 1698.

* This List is given separate from the Dundalk Infantry List, and has been put in Vol. VIII. of King

dent the above was written before that date, probably in Nov. or Dec. 1689, when it had been 
arranged to disband several Regts. It is interesting to know that five of the above selections for 
promotion took effect in 1690.

reached the Queen of the victory of the French fleet off Beachy Head over the English ana 
Dutch fleet, commanded by the Earl of Torrington. Most of the British troops having accompanied 
Wm. III. to Ireland, London was left in a very unguarded state. The French might easily have 
landed a large army on the south or east coast, but contented themselves with burning the peaceful 
shipping village of Teignmouth, and the services of this and other volunteer corps were never called 
into requisition.

winter of 1705-6. 

12 Ibid. Transferred from Col. Cutts' Regt. of Foot with which he had distinguished himself at 
the first siege of Limerick, where he was wounded. Luttrell, under date of Dec. 18, 1690, gives the 
following : — " Col. Greenville (son of the Earl of Bath), who was very solicitous for acquitting the Lord 
Torrington, is turned out of his government of Deal, his command at sea, and his company in the 
Lord Sidney's Regt. of Foot Guards ; which last is given to Capt. Foxon, who behaved himself in 
the late siege of Limerick so well " (Vol. II., p. 145). Served at Steinkirk, where he was killed. 
Probably a son of Sr. Sam. Foxon, Knt. 

13 M. E. B. 3. His comn. is dated " 27 Dec. 169£," which has caused some divergence of opinion as to 
whether the Duke of Schombergwas appointed Colonel in Dec. 1690 or Dec. 1691. The historian of 
the Grenadier Guards has adopted the latter date, which is also given in the Succession of Colonels, 
by T. Millan. But the correct date is 27 Dec. 1690. Lord Sidney was appointed Secretary of State 
on 23 Dec. 1690, and relinquished the Colonelcy of the Guards on receiving that appointment. This 
statement is confirmed by the fact of the Duke of Schomberg's name appearing as Colonel of the 1st Foot 
Guards in the commissions given in that Regt. throughout 1691, which appear in the Military Entry 
Books. The Duke of Schomberg proceeded to Savoy early in 1691 as C.-in-C. of the Auxiliaries sent to 
aid the Duke of Savoy against the French. D. at Turin of a wound received at the battle of 
Marsaglia, in Piedmont, the end of Sept. 1693. This nobleman's will, made on his death-bed, is 
given in Agnew's Protestant Exiles from France, Vol. I., p. 308.

Nov. 1715. Wrote an account of said battle, which was printed. Erroneously called James Wightman, 
in Millan's Succession of Colonels, and in Cannon's Records of the \7th Foot. Cannon says, 
" Genl. W. d. at Bath, of an apoplexy in Sept. 1722," which is at variance with the Scotch account 
of his having been present as a spectator at the battle of Preston Pans in 1745. Culloden Fapers.

a handsome monument to his memory, by Roubillac, in Westr. Abbey. It is snid that Roubillac

too high to be appreciated " (Dean Stanley's Memorials of Westminster Abbey, p. 267). This officer's 
character is thus summarised by the Revd. Jas. Grainger the biographer: — "A very worthy man 
where women were not concerned."

SIR JOHN HANMER'S REGT. OF FOOT.* 

[Chas. Irvine l to be Lieut.] 

*This Regt. served in Ireland from May 1689 to the close of the war, during which time only one 
or two strav commissions are forthcoming in the Comn. Entrj Books. The officer given below has an 
undoubted right to appear as a Lieut, in above Regt. in 1690. 

1 In Recommendations for Commiss : ons in the New Levies, 1706, is the following application: — 
" Capt. Chas. Irvine was one of the first that appeared in arms for the Protestant interest at Innis- 
killing, in Ireland, where he commanded a Company of Foot. His father, then a Captain of Horse, 
was killed in the Service, and two of his brothers, one a Capt. of Foot, and the other a Lieut, of 
Horse, had the like fate. That his uncle Sir Gerard Irvine had the King's Commission to command 
1 2 Troops of Horse, and this gentleman had one of them given to him instead of his Company ; but 
before they were formed into a Regt. his uncle died, so that he was advised by his friends, upon 
promises of preferment, to accept of a Lieutenancy in Sir Jno. Hanmore's Regt. He has served in 
Portugal and narrowly escaped being made prisoner wheo. the Regt. was taken, and has been re- 
commended by the Earl of Galway, and the other general officers there, to succeed the Major that 
was reported to be dead. Prays to be a Lieut.-Col. in the New Levies." Third son of Win Irvine 
of Ballindulla. Promoted Capt. before 1694, and made Brevet-Major 26 Apr. 1708. Md. in 1698, 
Marst., sister of Dr. Win. King, Archbishop of Dublin, aud d.s.p. in 1745. See pedigree of " Irvine 
of Castle Irvine, Co. Fermanagh," in Burke's Landed Gentry.

1 M. E. B. 2. Re-commissioned in 1702. This officer gave the following account of his services 
•when applying to the Duke of Marlborough for preferment in 1706: — " Was present at the battle of 
Blenheim, since which there has been two Majors and one Lieut. -Col. made to Brigadier How's Regt., 
■which he has headed in effect seven years, and commanded each of them fifteen. Prays his Grace to 
do something for him, since he has not been a sharer of his Grace's favours upon the battle of 
Blenheim " (Recommendations for Commissions in the New Levies, 1706). Promoted Lieut. -Col. 
before 24 March 1712. 

2 Ibid. Promoted Capt. 12 Sept. 1690. Served in Scotland. D. in Feb. 1694. 

s Ibid, and W. O. B. 1258. In latter Conin. Book the christian name is omitted, but the surname 
is given as Carleton, which is the ccrect spelling. This officer is the identical George Villiers 
Carleton known in history as " Capt. George Carleton," whose Memoirs have been, and still are, 
bones of contention, over which literary savants still snail and wrangle. Carleton's Memoirs first 
saw the light of print early in the reign of George II., and have gone through several editions. 
Their contents have furnished materials for historians and other writers in their several accounts of 
the Earl of Peterborough's campaigns in Spain during the war of the Spanish Succession, in w hich 
war Carleton undoubtedly took part as an engineer officer until taken prisoner at the petty siege of 
Deniainl7o8. Old soldiers, like travellers, often tell strange tales, and Carleton's adventures are 
said by many to have been the outcome of Daniel Defoe's most imaginative brain. Be this as it 
may, the fact still remains that Carleton's three commissions in the English Army (which have been 
sought for in vain by his chief detractor, and the supposed absence of which have weighed heavily in 
the scale against the veracity of the Memoirs in question) are now brought to light, viz., Carleton's 
comn. as Ensign in Col. Tufton's Regt. of Foot dated 1 Jan. 168-| (see Vol. II., p. 147), his comn. 
as Lieut, in same Regt. given above, and his comn. as rapt, in Col. Zacharia Tiffin's Regt. of Foot, 
dated 21 Mar. 169|. In the Flanders Army List for 1694 (Add. MS., 17,918), Capt. George Villiers 
Carleton appears in the List of Col. Tiffin's Regt. Was cashiered for a military misdemeanour in 
Ireland in Oct. 1700, but was granted half-pay by Rl. Wt., dated 28 Oct. 1700. Served under the 
Earl of Peterborough in Spain (comn. not forthcoming). See article on Capt. Carleton's Memoirs 
by Charles Dalton in tht Appendix, which article appeared in the Academy of 10 Aug. 1694.

Saml. Venner 2 to be Lieut.-Col. Dated W'hall, 1 Jan. 

1 M. E. B. 3. See p. 72, note 17. 

2 Ibid. According to the Records of the 24th Reyt. of Fool, this officer had served previously in 
Holland. Was promoted Col. of above Regt. 1 June 1691. Served in Ireland, and towards the 
close of the Irish campaign was appointed Govr. of Kilmainham Hospital. Dr. Jno. Burton, who 
held the post of "Reader" to aforesaid hospital in 1692, has left the following sketch of Col. 
Venner: — " Never was there a more happy specimen of these rich rags of royalty than Colonel 
Venner. Methinks I see him now before me stand, shaking his head and side locks in asseveration of 
the truth of what he witnessed, tapping his gold-mounted tortoise shell snuff-box, while standing 
at the south entrance of the hall, or pulling out his gold turnip-watch, with dian hunt relieved, dogs 
panting and breathing, or in bushy thickets lost. The inadvertent stroke of a brother veteran's 
doeskin gauntlet has killed the pet fly that by day perched on his shoulder, and which by night he 
sheltered beneath a wineglass ; but the dinner drum dispels the cloud gatheriug upon his brow." — 
(See Guide to the Rl. Hospital, Dublin, by Major Childers, R.E. (p. 39). In the " List of Masters 
of Kilmainham Hospital " Col. Vernier's name is erroneously given as " Daniel." {Guide as before, 
p. 76). In the Brit. Mus. Library is an undated single-sheet tract (folio) entitled, " The case of 
Col. Samuel Venner, late Governor of his Majestie's hospital for sick and wounded men in Ireland, 
[claiming certain arrears due to him]." In 1693, Col. Venner was appointed Director of Hospitals 
in the Low Countries (Warrants for Pay and Contingencies from 1688-Dec. 1693). Served in the 
Brest Expedition in 1694, and was reported killed. Under date of 12 Mar. 1695, Luttrell has this 
piece of news: — " Saturday last Col. Rowe and Col. Venner were suspended by a court-martial upon 
complaint of some officers, and 'tis said will be broke" (Vol. III., p. 450). Venner's Regt. was 
given to the Marquis de Puizar 13 Mar. 1695.

4 Ibid. This comn. bears the date " 4 Jan. 16|§," but Mackay was de facto C.-in-C. of the 
Forces in Scotland from March 1689. Promoted Lieut.-Gen. 24 Dec. 1690. His eminent services 
in Scotland, Ireland, and Flanders are too well known to be recapitulated here. He fell on the 
fatal held of Steinkirk, and his epitaph was pronounced by Wm. III. over the General's grave in 
the following words: — "There he lies, and a braver or better man he has not left behind him." — 
Life of Lieut.-Gen. Hugh Mackay, p. 131. 

5 Ibid. This officer is believed to have been a Dutchman. He was Lieut, of the Scotch Artillery 
Companv in the reign of Chas. II, and was sent to the Low Countries in 1681 to enlist master 
gunners," fire- workers, and gunners for the Scotch Artillery. At the Revolution Slezer was Captain 
of the Scotch Artillery Company, and did not give in his adherence to Wm. III. until after the 
battle of Killiecrankie. Was a well-known engiaver on copper, and in 1693 brought out the first 
Vol. of his Theatrum Scotia, which contained " prospects " of the most notable palaces, castles, 
noblemen's seats, &c, with descriptive letter-press. Was patronised by King Wm. and Queen 
Mary, and had an Act passed in his favour by the Parlt. of Scotland, granting him a royalty on 
every ton of foreign ships which came into any Scotch harbour for the space of five years. But 
the expenses entailed by his mat/man opus, and the irregular payment of the royalties granted to 
him, dragged him into irretrievable debt, and obliged him to betake himself to the sanctuary of 
Holyrood House, where he remained many years. Altho' his comn. as Capt. of the Scotch Artillery 
Company and Surveyor of the Magazines was renewed by Queen Anne in 1702, his affairs became 
so hopelessly iuvolved that, about 1708, he was obliged to quit Scotland, and died in obscurity about 
1714. Sue Memoir of Capt. Jno. Slezer in Dr. Jamiesou's edition of Theatrum Scotia', published 
in 1874; also Chas. Dalton's article on the Scots Artillery Company in Proceedings of the Royal 
Artillery Institution for Dec. 1895.

* Ordnance Warrant Book, Vol." XIII., fo. 13-22. The Train of Artillery raised for Ireland in 
1689 had, at the close of the year 1690, dwindled to next to nothing. Fever and ague, coupled with 
hunger and mismanagement, had proved even more deadly enemies than the Jacobite hosts up to 
12 Aug. 1690. At two in the morning on the fatal 12 Aug. the artillery convoy, consisting of a train 
of ammunition waggons, together with 2 eighteen -pounders and 6 twenty-four pounders, several 
waggons of provisions, &c, &c, bound from Dublin to Limerick, then besieged by King William's 
Army, was surprised by Genl. Patrick Sarsfield and his troops, and all the waggoners, gunners and 
camp followers were barbarously butchered in their sleep. The waggons were then burnt and the guns 
burst. This untoward calamity had much to do with the ill-success of the first siege of Limerick in 
1690. A new Train was raised out of the ashes of the old one, aDd, by all accounts, the 1691 Train 
was very superior to its predecessor. Story, the historian of the Wars in Ireland, 1689-1691, thus 
refers under date of May 1691 to the new Train: — "Our Train of Artillery was also upon their 
march from Dublin to Mullingar, being such an one as had never been seen before in that Kingdom." 
Part II., p. 80. 

1 This distinguished Dutch artillerist was appointed Col. of the Artillery Train for Flanders 1 Apr. 
1692 and again in 1694. Attained the rank of Major-General in the Dutch service, and was killed at 
the battle of Schellenberg in 1704.

26 Ibid. This distinguished soldier was born at St. Germans, in Cornwall, about 1665. He was 
son of John Wills, who, according to Le Neve, was a shoemaker ; but Col. Chester, a more reliable 
authority, refutes this. Chas. Wills probably served both at Steinkirk and Lauden. His military 
abilities led to his being selected for early promotion, and on 6 Nov. 1694 he was appointed Major of 
Col. Tho. Saunderson's Regt. of Foot. On 1 May 1697 he was made Lieut. -Col. of the same Regt., 
which was disbanded a few months later and the officers placed on half-pay. On the formation of 
Visct. Charlemont's Regt. of Foot, in Ireland, in June 1701, Lt.-Col. Wills was appointed Lieut. -Col. 
of the same, and in the following spring em harked with his Regt. for Cadiz. From thence Charlemont's 
was sent to the West Indies, where Col. Wills gained distinction in the Island of Guadaloupe, where 
several towns were burnt after the French troops in the island had been defeated. In the action at 
La Bayliffe " Col. Wills behaved himself with great bravery " (London Gazette, 10 May 1703). He 
succeeded to the command of the troops on shore in Apr. 1703 ; and, after burning and destroying the 
French towns and fortifications along the coast, he embarked his troops on board the squadron on 
7 May, bringing away all the captured French guns. After losing many officers and men in the West 
Indies, Charlemont's returned to Ireland in the autumn of 1703. In 1705 Wills accompanied the Earl 
of Peterborough to Spain as Adjt. -Gen., and served almost uninterruptedly in the Peninsula until 
Dec. 1710. Served at the taking of Barcelona, and was appointed Col. of a Regt. of Marines 13 Oct. 
1705. Was second in command in the district of Lerida, and rendered valuable service at the battle 
of St. Estevan, where Major-Gen. Conyugham was killed. Again distinguished himself in the defence 
of the town of Lerida, which capitulated after an obstinate defence. Brig. -Gen. 1 Jan. 1707. Com- 
manded 1500 Marines and a Spanish regt. in Sardinia in 1708, and reduced Cagliari. Promoted 
Major-Gen. 1 Jan. 1709, and appointed C.-in-C. of the Forces on board Adml. Baker's fleet 17 June 
1709. Fought at Almenara in 1710, and commanded an Infantry Brigade at the battle of Saragossa. 
Was recommended to Queen Anne for promotion to the rank of Lieut.-Gen., which rank had already 
been conferred on him by Charles III., titular King of Spain. In the unfortunate action at Brihuega, 
1 Dec. 1710, Wills earned fresh laurels, and was thus mentioned in Gen. Stanhope's dispatches: — 
" Lieut.-Gen. Wills was, during all the action, at the post which was attacked with most vigour, and 
which he as resolutely defended." After suffering a rigorous imprisonment of some months, Wills was 
allowed to return to England. In the rebellion of 1715 Wills besieged and took Preston, which was a 
Jacobite stronghold. For this and his past services he was appointed Col. of the 3rd Foot 5 Jan. 
1716; Gov. of Portsmouth 1717; Lieut.-Gen. of the Ordnajice 22 Apr. 1722; Knight of the Bath 
17 June, 1725; Col. of the 1st Foot Guards, 26 Aug. 1726; Gen. Comg. the Foot, 1739; M.P. for 
Totnes, and one of Geo. I.'s Privy Council. He d. unm. in London on Christmas Day 1741, and was 
interred in Westminster Abbey.

* There is no List of this Regt. in the Comn. Entry Books, but in Add. MS. 18,023 are to be found 
a number of pay-receipts signed by the officers of Lord Geo. Hamilton's Iuniskilleu Regt. of Foot. 
These autograph pay-receipts range from Oct. 1690 to the 29 Dec. 1691, and the above List is com- 
piled therefrom. Lord Geo. Hamilton's, late Col. Tho. Lloyd's Regt., rendered valuable service in 
Ireland durin°- the whole of the campaign, and the following letter from the Lords Justices of Ireland 
to the Earl of Nottingham, Secy, of State, dated from Dublin, 6 Feb. 169|, shows to what a high 
state of efficiency this Regt. had been brought at the close of the Irish campaign :— " Orders having 
come here for the breaking of Lord Geo. Hamilton's Regt. of Foot, when the money comes for that 
purpose, we have consulted Lieut.-Gen. Scravenmore upon it. It seems to us best for the King's 
service to transport it as entire as it can be carried from hence, and after marching it some few 
days from Chester, to adjust all their accounts, to send under discreet officers such numbers to join 
any other regiments that want what [men] they can make up. . . . They are all well and 
seasoned in this war, and by the account we had of the battle of Aughrim, none did better service or 
more execution upon the enemy" (S. P. Ireland). This well-digested plan for supplying various 
reo-ts with seasoned veterans was not altogether a success, as it is recorded that "when Lord Geo. 
Hamilton's Regt. came out of quarters it was 700 strong, but before it could be got ready for em- 
barkation over 450 deserted."

Inniskillincr Regt. commanded by the Earl of Orkney, in which post he served till the reduction of 
Ireland, when the Regt. was broke ; he has received no half-pay ever since, and therefore prays his

face of a hill, a little above the house of Urrard, to the westward of the great pass [of Killiecrankie], 
he turned round to young Cameron, who stood next him, and pointing to the Camerons, '• Here," said 
he, " is your father with his wild savages ; how would you like to be with him ? " " It signifies 
little," replied the other, " what 1 would like ; but I recommend to you to be prepared, or perhaps 
my father and bis wild savages may be nearer to you before night than you would like." And so it 
happened. Maj.-Gen. David Stewart's Highland Sketches, Vol. I. p. 63.

on half-pay 1 Feb. 1699. 

2 This officer greatly distinguished himself at the battle of Landen. Luttrell, under date of 15 Aug. 

1693, says: "Capt. Ball, an English officer who had the command of 6 pieces of cannon in the late 

fight,' aftermost of the men had left the field, was attacked by the French, but he played the cannon 
so smartly on them that they retired, and he brought the 6 pieces of cannon to our camp ; whereon he

6 Raised himself by scientific ability and love of his profession from the humble position of gunner 
to the proud position of Major of the Royal Regt. of Artillery, which post he held at the time of his 
death. In 1689 this officer was appointed a gunner (warrant comn. dated 12 Mar. 1689) to the 
Artillery detachment sent to the relief of Londonderry. In 1690-1 he served as a bombardier in the

8 Capts. Van Erp, Glendall, and Lieut. Tho. Morris, served in the Flanders Train of 1694. 

9 The first; Artillerist of his day who, in many a siege and on many a bloody field, by his professional 
knowledge greatly contributed to the success of the army which had the good fortune to command his 
services. By birth a Dane, he came to England on the invitation of Win. III. in 1692. " Though 
young in years he was in sage counsels old," and his experiences as a soldier of fortune in Continental 
armies was of great value to Dutch William. He served in all the campaigns in Flanders under his new 
master, and in the following reign rendered valuable service at all the principal battles and sieges in 
Spain and Portugal. Had his left arm shattered, in 1706, at the siege of Ciudad Rodrigo. Was at

Flanders." Probably fought at Steinkirk, as he did not return to England until Oct. 18 (Vol. II., 
p. 416 and p. 596). The same writer, under date of Nov. 9, 1693, informs us that — "Capt. Bembo, 
Engineer Phillips, and Capt. Silver, with the expedition squadron, had burnt near 30 privateers at 
St. Maloes, with many merchant ships and transport vessels ; and by their bombs had burnt a great 
part of the town, which was on fire in divers places (Vol. III. p. 222)." Appointed Master-Gunner
